About This Item
Vintage Used IWASAKI Kamisori 55mm Blue I steel Japanese Razor
Iwasaki Miyamoto Gatsusaku (collaboration)
It looks it has used, but it is still very good condition. It has minor rust spots here and there, so I polished little bit to remove the rust spots. It is totally different shape as Iwasaki Kamisori we have seen often. The Iwasaki logo stamp and the others stamp looks different from as we have often seen. They can see in older model of iwasaki razors, so they might be very early days of Iwasaki kamisori as far as I know. Iwasaki Razor Co., started on little after WWII, so it might be about 50 to 65 years old. Early days in Iwasaki had looked suitable steel for razors in early days, because Tamahagane is not easy to make razor and it costs too high. I guess blue I steel is one of the steels they tried it out at the time.
The blade length: 55mm (2 1/8 inch) The total length of the razor: 152mm (6 inch) The thickness of the shoulder: 5mm (3/16inch) The width of the blade from the edge to the shoulder: 18mm (3/4 inch) The total weight of the razor: 1oz.
